Winter Olympics Offer Concrete Proof That America Is Still A Racist Country

If anyone thinks the United States had finally shed its vile, racist ways with the election of Barack Obama, think again. One simply needs to watch the 2010 Winter Olympics - it's proof that the United States hasn't progressed - it's still the same racist nation it's always been. White institutionalized racism is more alive than ever, and clearly it permeates the USOC (United States Olympic Committee). For those people-of-color who haven't had time to watch the winter Olympics, the USOC's website has photos of the "Team USA" athletes:
http://www.teamusa.org/athletes/find

See much diversity? Hardly. It seems 95% (or more) of the athletes are white. I thought this nation had moved past Jim Crow laws? Perhaps technically it did, but in practical terms, Jim Crow is alive and well. White privilege once again rears its ugly head and people-of-color are subject to it during two weeks of Winter Olympic games in Vancouver.

What can be done about this? I suggest people of conscience write the USOC and express their outrage regarding the lack of diversity of "Team USA". The USOC mailing address is:

USOC
1 Olympic Plaza
Colorado Springs, CO 80909

The USOC is a publicly funded entity - your tax dollars are funding this racist organization - demand justice!

In looking towards the next Winter Olympics four years from now, mandatory racial quotas must determine the racial/ethnic makeup of "Team USA 2014". Such quotas should reflect the racial breakdown of the United States, percentage-wise. All people of moral character should work towards correcting our de facto Jim Crow society.

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICS -- For Peace And Justice To Be Realized, White People Must Be Reduced To A Minority

Susan Sontag once wrote, "the white race is the cancer of humanity". I must confess that I agree. It may sound harsh, but when one objectively analyzes the myriad of crimes committed by whites against people-of-color, Ms. Sontag's statement is obvious. For the past 2,000 years, white crimes against people-of-color include: slavery, imperialism & conquest, colonization, theft of resources, racism & discrimination, theft of dignity, robbing of language and culture... the list is endless. Wherever white people settle (ie. invade) they oppress, enslave, and abuse the indigenous non-white population.

WESTERN CIVILIZATION IS CULTURALLY "WIRED" FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY
Some progressives have stated that white people are genetically (ie. biologically) "wired" for racism and oppression. I tend to think the problem is culturally rooted. Specifically, the problem with white people is the following: whites are the embodiment of Western civilization and Western civilization is inherently based on greed, selfishness, oppression, racism, anti-Semitism, and murder. The history of the Western world is a never-ending sequence of horrific crimes against humanity.

WHITES MUST BE REDUCED TO A MINORITY
White people have had 2,000 years to change their ways and, yet, THEY HAVE NOT. Whites seem unable to practice justice and fairness. Therefore the only solution is to reduce whites to a minority wherever they are presently a majority (USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, etc). The sooner whites are reduced to a minority, the sooner the world can be remade into a unified global society based on justice & dignity... a world free of war and conflict. In such a world, the natural instincts inherent in people-of-color (eg. sharing, justice, peace, fairness, etc) will then finally be free to flourish. Lastly, the fewer white people in the world, the less chance they'll have to re-emerge and restart their oppressive & racist ways. Sadly, this is the only solution, and, however this solution is realized is justified (large scale non-white immigration, birth control, abortion, etc).

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICS -- Minority crime is caused by white oppression

The next time you read about an African American or Hispanic who committed a crime, don't blame the African American or Hispanic, instead blame the majority white population. Whites have historically oppressed people-of-color; this has been occurring for hundreds of years. Oppressed people have limited opportunity for education, employment, promotion, advancement, etc. Such oppression unfortunately manifests itself in the form of violent crime. Ultimately, whites are responsible for such crime.

GANGS & GRAFFITI
Nobody likes street gangs or graffiti. Unfortunately, most street gangs are either Hispanic or African American. However, the reality is that gangs result when whites oppress people-of-color. When a gang member commits a violent crime, the gang member should NEVER be on trial. Instead, the majority white population should be on trial for oppressing minorities... the gang member is the victim and the white population at large is the victimizer.
As a person-of-color myself, it's disheartening to admit that the majority of graffiti in urban America is done by minorities (most studies on graffiti & vandalism show this). However, the next time you drive down the highway and see graffiti, don't blame minority youth for spraying such graffiti. His action is the cumulative effect of white institutionalized oppression. Essentially, it is white oppression which is "spraying" the graffiti, not the young person-of-color. Minorities spray graffiti as a subconscious expression of their oppression. The anger you feel when seeing the ugliness of such graffiti should be directed at white people.

WHAT ABOUT MURDER?
In the case in which a person-of-color commits murder, there should be some, albeit, limited punishment (perhaps a couple years of prison time). But again, such a crime, as heinous as it is, is ultimately the result of white oppression. Rehabilitation, job training, and housing should be provided to the person-of-color upon his/her release from prison.

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICS -- The teaching & promotion of alternate sexual lifestyles

The social "norm" of heterosexuality is oppressive to alternate lifestyles. Who is to say heterosexuality is "normal" and alternate sexual lifestyles are "not normal"? Only a bigot would make such a claim. Nobody should cast judgement on another person simply because he/she practices something different. Humans are complex creatures and our diverse sexuality is one reflection of this. All sexualities are equal and, even though some sexual lifestyles may be practiced by a minority of the population, this certainly shouldn't make them less acceptable.

Unfortunately, our bigoted heterosexual society marginalizes, mocks, and oppresses alternate sexualities. During the past 40 years, a campaign of tolerance has helped this situation somewhat. However, tremendous oppression still exists towards those practicing alternate sexual lifestyles. The only way to end such discrimination is to normalize alternate sexual lifestyles by vigorously promoting them. By drastically increasing the numbers of gays, lesbians, bisexual, and transgender people in society, we essentially normalize alternate sexualities.

Ideally, in say 40 years (roughly two generations), we hope to realize a society in which at least 50% of all people are gay or lesbian. In slowly building up to this 40 year mark, we incrementally will (year by year) make alternate sexual lifestyles become more and more normal. Such sexualities will eventually, by definition, not be "alternative" but rather normal (due to the large percentage of the population practicing them).

TEACHING ALTERNATE SEXUAL LIFESTYLES
Older generations are a lost cause since they are typically set in their beliefs. This is why it's imperative to focus our efforts on teaching the newest generation (children) about alternate sexual lifestyles. It is critical that we teach children about all sexualities at as young an age as possible. Why? Because the younger a child is, the easier they are to reach. Waiting until a child is 8 or 9 (for example) is too late since their mind has already been polluted with bigoted ideas which are pervasive throughout society. A child should grow up being equally curious about boys and girls. Youth should be free to choose same sex relationships without any pre-conceived notions about what is "normal". When these goals are realized, discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people will end.

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICS -- Only whites are racist; people-of-color cannot be racist since they are oppressed

White people, ie. European derived people, make up only 9% of the world's population yet control about 70% of the world's wealth. How can this be??? The answer is that for the past 500 or so years, whites have oppressed people-of-color by enslaving them and/or colonizing their land & stealing their resources. Through brutal and militaristic methods, white people have marginalized the rest of the world. This campaign of white terror has resulted in generation spanning white priviledge which has enabled whites to enjoy benefits at the expense of non-whites. Typically, even when a person-of-color has managed to persevere and break through white oppression to some degree, he/she is beaten back down via white institutionalized racism and discrimination. We see this pattern repeated as non-whites are constantly denied promotions, educational opportunities, and professional placement. Yes... it's true that a handful of non-whites have reached a fairly high professional position. But whites only allow this anomaly as a propaganda tactic to make it seem as though they (ie. whites) are fair. A person-of-color who does reach a high position is simply the "token minority" to be used and paraded around in "demonstrating" so-called "tolerance".
Unfortunately, the vast majority of whites are incapable of being taught justice. And frankly, whites are clearly wired for racism and oppression - nothing has changed with them for hundreds of years. Every place on Earth white people settle, they oppress the indiginous peoples - there are no exceptions! Hence in order for the world to realize true justice and equality, whites must be reduced to a minority in Europe and all other Western nations where whites are presently the majority.

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICS -- The Elimination Of All Religions (Religion = Organized Oppression)

What is religion? Religion is an illusion, a silly superstitious fantasy created to comfort the insecurities of humans. Religion is the ultimate form of oppression & control over a person's life. Religion prevents people from realizing the strength that lies within themselves. By believing in false gods, people naturally suppress their inner strength. Most important, religion creates false moral boundaries regarding sexuality, honor, free will, and free expression. Religion plants fake ideas and false ideals in people's heads regarding what is acceptable behavior. You are your own god! Never be subservient to some "religion" which, sadly, too many people have been indoctrinated with. NEVER be obedient to some "higher god"... decide for yourself what feels right and hence it will be right. When you see a church, you should view it as an institution of oppression.
Religion also undermines the authority of a collectivist-based society... a collective society made up of secular humanists (ie. people which hold the core belief that morality is whatever suits each individual). There should NEVER, I repeat NEVER, be limits & absolutes on the definition of "right" and "wrong" behavior.
In particular, Christianity is the most offensive of the major religions. Why? Because it has historically been the backbone of the Western world. And, clearly, Western thought & culture is the cancer wrought upon all of global humanity for the past 2,000 years.

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICS -- Elimination Of The "Nuclear Family"

What is the "nuclear family" or so-called "traditional" family? In short, it's a social unit used as an instrument of oppression on the succeeding generation. Outmoded and often racist ideas are passed from one generation to the next via the so-called "traditional family". When children are born into a "traditional" family, they are immediately indoctrinated by their parents with: oppressive, hierarchical, patriarchal/authoritative/fascist and viciously racist ideas ... this spans generations. Think of the "traditional" family as a generational chain of oppression.

Progressive people of the world (such as myself) work tirelessly to instill ideas of justice, equality, and egalitarianism in youth. However, we progressives are constantly fighting against unjust and often racist ideas which have polluted the minds of children... these ideas coming from, of course, the children's parents (who were themselves polluted with the same ideas FROM THEIR PARENTS). This cycle of oppression MUST be elimated... henceforth, the "nuclear family" must be eliminated. Only without the "nuclear family" can children be taught the virtuous values of equality & justice via the schools and other instruments of managed socialization.

PRINCIPLE OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICS -- Elimination of all borders and dissolution of the nation-state concept

What are borders? Why do we have them? The short answer is that borders are meant to divide people. Borders are meant to oppress people. Borders are an invention of the elite to divide and conquer/control/oppress the masses of humanity. The very concept of a "nation" is oppressive and degrading. We are citizens of the Earth, nothing more and nothing less. We must work to eliminate these oppressive, racist borders which carve the world into 195 so-called "countries". People must be free to live anywhere they choose with absolutely no restrictions whatsoever. For example, anyone in the world who chooses to live in the "United States", as they call it, should be able to. In fact, the "USA" now has a moral obligation to the world's people, especially when considering how oppressive the racist white power structure of the "USA" has been for the past 200+ years. Destroy the nation-state, erase these oppressive and racist borders - we must build a world in which all of humanity is united for the collective good of humanity.
